As the world slowly opens back up from pandemic closures, artists like Anushka are helping us prepare for the euphoric vibes that are sure to follow. The Brighton-based duo’s latest single “Speak to Me” features vivacious, dance floor-ready energy that is paired with mindful lyrics that explore spirituality. The track is out now via the label Tru Thoughts.
Producer Max Wheeler and vocalist Victoria Port have well-established chemistry that is on full display on “Speak to Me” as they blend heady elements with a visceral, buoyant groove. Wheeler delivers understated instrumentals that maintain the liveliness throughout while also providing a warm springboard for Port’s ethereal vocal delivery.
The song’s lyrics float over the top of the pulsing music as Port explores one’s connection to a higher power and the natural world. Her unhurried delivery makes the listener hang on every word, and her vocals blossom into heavenly harmonic stacks at a few choice moments. With equal parts taste and originality, “Speak to Me” will certainly get listeners moving, offering just the latest example why we should watch out for Anushka.
